AKRON, OHIO -- Plastics News has released the second installment in its three-part series called "Injection Molders Market Review & Outlook 2013."

This 75-page report -- offered as a digital PDF download -- provides in-depth analysis of the plastics injection molding industry for companies with annual North American injection-molding-related sales from $25 million to $150 million for the fiscal year ending 2011, the most recent year for which complete ranking data is available. It also includes 106 charts and tables, dozens of company profiles (with contact information), Q&A interviews with industry leaders, and an economic forecast for key end markets, as well as sections on education and employee recruitment, equipment sales trends, and developments in additive manufacturing.

Our experts talk to industry executives who share their insights about current economic and political conditions, key market trends, and legislative and regulatory activity that could impact supply and demand for injection molders. The report also identifies threats and opportunities to business activity as well as materials pricing, manufacturing technology and business strategies being implemented by companies within the revenue range.

Plastics News senior reporter Bill Bregar offers his perspective on the future of injection molding. Economist Peter Mooney of Advance, N.C.-based Plastics Custom Research Services examines the future of the segment, providing a forecast through 2016 for injection molding sales to major end markets, as well as analyzing historical sales and gross domestic product trends.

The report — titled "Injection Molders Market Review & Outlook 2013 -- North America -- Firms with Sales From $25M-$150M" — includes profiles of 46 injection molders. The profiles examine growth initiatives as well as performance metrics over 10 years, including sales, throughput, plants and presses, employment and materials processed, and identify each firm's top officials.

The Q&A interviews offer first-hand perspectives from such thought leaders as: Karlheinz Bourdon, vice president of technology, KrausMaffei Group; Ron Ricotta, CEO, Century Mold Co. Inc.; Paul Manley, CFO, MGS Mfg. Group Inc.; Brenan Riehl, CEO, GW Plastics Inc.; and José Federíco Vera Palafox, founder and managing director, Grupo Industrial Vera SA.
